[prMac.com] Hereford, United Kingdom - DssW, the leading developer of Mac energy saving software, has released Battery Guardian for Mac OS X. Battery Guardian helps Mac owners extend the life of their laptop battery.
Battery Guardian is a new product that helps users know when to deplete their laptop battery. Battery Guardian works by placing a small heart in the top-right of the menu bar. When the time comes to deplete, the heart turns red. This simple and clear indicator makes looking after the battery easy.
"Battery Guardian was created to help my wife with her MacBook Pro. We quickly found it invaluable and knew our customers would also love this assistant." said Graham Miln, Director. "A failing battery is expensive to replace and something that can be avoided."
To get the most out of a MacBook battery, it should be depleted once a month. Depleting involves disconnecting the mains power and using the battery until the charge is nearly empty.
This battery advice is provided on Apple's website. Yet, we have found most MacBook owners are unaware of this important information. MacBook battery replacements are costly and create difficult to dispose of waste. Battery Guardian helps users avoid these costs and get the most from their MacBook.
Once started, Battery Guardian runs in the background and does not require the application to be left running. Battery Guardian will automatically track the battery charge. Each time the battery is depleted, Battery Guardian will reset the reminder.
Pricing and Availability:
Battery Guardian is free and is available today on the DssW web site.
System requirements are Mac OS X 10.6.7 or later. Suitable for laptop Macs including the MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.
